Membership Information
How and why to join PSMRE

I've never felt so accepted in all my life. These people looked
deep within my soul, and assigned me a number based on the
order in which I joined.       - Homer Simpson

Why Join?

Membership in PSMRE gets you the PSMRE newsletter, operating rights during club sessions, and pride in contributing to a world-class layout.

You don't need to be a member to work on the project! If you have skills to contribute to the layout, or you would like to build one of the structures we need, please contact us using the interest form. Of course, we do encourage you to consider membership.

Requirements for Membership

Complete an orientation and member-candidate process.

Contribute four pieces of rolling stock, or one Locomotive- complying with PSMRE standards. This can be done during your initial months as a member.

Application fee of $20

Annual dues of $48

The Next Step

If you are interested in joining PSMRE, please print out the interest form, complete it, and mail it to the address printed on the form.  (Sorry, we're not ready for electronic forms yet.)  Do not send any fees with this form!  Our membership chairperson will get in touch with further details on what membership entails, and the process of becoming a member.

If the membership process seems a little paperwork-heavy, remember that we have built a world-class model in a state-funded museum.  With proper orientation and apprenticeship, everyone can help to maintain and operate this wonderful layout.  We need to make sure all potential members are aware of the expectations, goals, and procedures of the organization.  So please bear with us, send in the form, and learn more about PSMRE membership!
